Recently, the surrogate Kabul administration has been trying to involve (an important country like) Russia in Afghanistan under the pretext of threat posed by ISIS. They are cashing in on the name of ISIS and showing their strength many folds greater than what it actually is. They consider them a serious threat to entire region especially to our northern neighboring countries. Hence, they want to garner Russia’s military and logistical assistance for their personal and party interests. But, in fact to a great extent ISIS is merely propaganda project in Afghanistan.
It is an open fact that the emergence of ISIS in our country is a joint project of Kabul administration and other foreign intelligence agencies. Similarly, some high ranking officials of Kabul administration have also repeatedly exposed these secrets. For example, few months ago, the then governor of Paktika province asserted that: “the National Security Council of Afghanistan has given two hundred thousand dollars in assistance to the families of ISIS fighters in Barmal district of that province”. On 23 November 2015, the so called deputy speaker of Wolasi Jirga (national assembly) publicly stated in open session of the assembly that: “our government, military institutions and security council are supporting ISIS (Daesh). I swear by God, the commanders of ISIS are living in Kabul. They go to embassies and our offices…….”
Likewise, Russia which is an important country at international level knows that the two-headed Kabul administration has no power nor the ability to rescue our country from this chaotic situation because they are installed by foreigners and working for the interests of foreigners only. They are not committed to their country and to the security, prosperity and development of the region. Bilateral visits, promises of cooperation and political engagements of Russia with unpopular officials of Kabul administration have led to resentment among the Afghan people.
In our view, Russian involvement and their military, logistical and economical assistance with the Kabul administration is neither in the interest of Russia nor the Afghan people and Mujahideen because our country is under occupation of foreigners and the Afghan people are physically fighting against them in the strongholds of Jihad. Therefore, assistance in the present situation amounts to cooperation to prolong the occupation. In other words, it is cooperation with the enemy of the Afghan nation and is a beginning of another cold war.
The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan wants cordial relation with all regional countries including Russia. Our struggle is for the obtainment of independence and for the establishment of an Islamic system in the country. In light of the following sayings of the holy Prophet (peace be upon him), the Islamic Emirate declares to all its commitment of having no intention to harm anyone.
لا ضرر ولا ضرار في الاسلام
“There should be neither harming nor reciprocating harm in Islam”
Similarly, the esteemed new leader of Islamic Emirate has repeatedly stated in his messages that: “we want cordial, constructive and legitimate relations with neighboring, regional and other countries of the world”.
